"Monument of Pope Gregory XV"

Pierre Etienne Monnot - Marble - (Sant'Ignazio (Rome, Italy))

From 1552 to 1567, the English merchant Thomas Gresham (1519-1579) lived and worked in Antwerp as financial agent of the English crown (`King's merchant'). This prominent social position explains why he had his portrait painted by Mor, who was court artist to Philip II. This Utrecht-born painter was noted for the accurate recording of detail in his portraits. He depicted Gresham as a strong, somewhat reserved personality. Mor also painted a portrait of Gresham's wife, which is likewise in the Rijksmuseum.
